Nebraska INSURANCE FRAUD Lawyers
Insurance Fraud Charges in Lincoln & Omaha
Insurance companies do not hesitate to contact law enforcement if they
believe a claim is fraudulent. Those accused may have little warning that
they are under investigation for criminal charges until they are contacted
by law enforcement. By that time, police typically are looking for probable
cause to make an arrest.
Established in 1965, the Berry Law Firm has earned a statewide and national
reputation for excellence in criminal defense. With offices in Omaha and
Lincoln, our criminal defense lawyers represent clients throughout Nebraska.

Skilled Defense in Insurance Fraud Crimes
According to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, insurance fraud costs
insurance companies more than $80 billion every year. Insurance fraud
is an increasing focus of law enforcement in Nebraska and other states.
When a law enforcement officer asks a suspect to submit to an interview
concerning suspected insurance fraud, the purpose of the meeting is often
to obtain enough information or probable cause to make an arrest. The
officer in most cases is a trained interrogator and might not tell you
everything he or she knows and may even lie about the case to elicit admissions.
If the suspect attempts to explain the situation, he or she may inadvertently
provide information that corroborates the charges. If the suspect attempts
to lie, he or she may be charged with additional crimes. To avoid potentially
devastating consequences, anyone suspected of a crime should consider
contacting a criminal defense attorney before talking to anyone.
Our lawyers represent clients facing such insurance fraud charges as the
- Life insurance fraud
- Theft, fire and water damage claims
- Auto insurance fraud
- Disability insurance fraud
- Medicare or Medicaid fraud
- Health insurance fraud
In any fraud case, the key question is often whether the state can meet
its burden of proof. Without the suspect’s help, it may not be able to do so.
